A Southern Oregon man who was laid off and going back to school had a feeling he should buy a lottery ticket.

The Oregon Lottery says Riley Gunn of Wolf Creek won $1 million in the Jan. 4 Mega Millions drawing, and is now buying a house.

The prize came to $670,000 after taxes. The family picked it up last week in Salem.

Gunn told lottery officials he was thrilled when he initially learned he had won $250,000, but then realized he had chosen the Megaplier option, which multiplied his prize by four, for a total of $1 million before taxes.

Gunn bought the $8 Quick Pick Mega Millions ticket at the Lil’ Pantry Market & Deli in Merlin, which is about 5 miles north of Grants Pass.

VIDEO: Lottery officials identify Matthew Good as the second winner of the $587.5 million jackpot.

December 10, 2012

The second winner of the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot was identified Monday as Matthew Good, a married man who moved to an affluent Phoenix suburb last year from Pennsylvania.

Good, 37, had decided to remain anonymous, but lottery winners in Arizona are a matter of public record. The Associated Press filed a public records request to learn his name.

Good took the one-time payout of $192 million from the Nov. 28 drawing, telling lottery officials the looming fiscal cliff was the reason he claimed the winnings now and not in the next calendar year. He had 180 days to claim his share of the jackpot.

Lottery officials wouldn’t say what Good does for a living but described him as a professional who has no immediate plans to quit his job.

A search of property records showed that Good paid $289,900 for his 2,500-square-foot Fountain Hills home in September 2011. The real estate listing describes the house as having gorgeous mountain views, vaulted ceilings, a backyard with an outdoor kitchen and a three-car garage.

Good previously issued a statement that said: “It is difficult to express just how thankful we are for this wonderful gift. We are extremely grateful and feel fortunate to now have an increased ability to support our charities and causes. Obviously, this has been incredibly overwhelming and we have always cherished our privacy.”

No one answered the door Monday at Good’s home, which has a tile roof and desert landscaping, and sits next to a wash.

Neighbors said they were slightly acquainted with Good and described him as a generous, amiable person who keeps up his property.

Randy Tanner, who lives next door, said Good has a warm relationship with his daughter, who is about 5. Good recently helped Tanner carry a table to a friend’s house in the neighborhood.

Retired police officer Jerry Meltzer, who lives across the street, said he didn’t know Good well, but the two had once worked on Meltzer’s car.

“You can’t beat them for neighbors,” Meltzer said.

Good bought $10 worth of tickets and kept the winner in the visor of his car overnight before realizing he was an instant millionaire.

He gave $20 to the cashier of a Fountain Hills convenience store, and the clerk nudged him to spend the entire amount on tickets. He declined the offer.

After Good and his wife learned of their good fortune, he pulled together a team of financial advisers and decided to take his share this month to avoid potentially higher taxes in 2013.

Lottery officials said Good’s wife owns half the prize because Arizona is a community property state.

A mechanic and his wife, Mark and Cindy Hill, of Dearborn, Mo., already have claimed their half of the multistate Powerball prize.

The jackpot was the second-largest in U.S. history and set off a nationwide buying frenzy. At one point, tickets were selling at nearly 130,000 a minute.

Before the drawing, the jackpot had rolled over 16 consecutive times without any winners. In a Mega Millions drawing in March, three ticket buyers shared a $656 million jackpot, the largest lottery payout of all time.

9:20 AM EST          Friday November 30, 2012

The new parlor game gripping two cities a thousand miles apart — “Who Won the Powerball” — ramped up Friday amid rumors, speculation and tantalizing clues.

In Missouri, the rural, 500-resident town of Dearborn was buzzing with speculation ahead of a scheduled 12 p.m. news conference with lottery officials at a high school to announce what the agency called “the winners” of the Show Me State share of the record-setting Powerball jackpot.

While the release seemed to hint at the possibility of a group win, Kansas City area media outlets were reporting the winning ticket is held by a 52-year-old Dearborn man named Mark Hill.

“It was us,” Hill’s son, Jason Hill, quoted his dad as saying in announcing the win to the family, reported CNN affiliate KCTV.

“I hope we all stay very grounded, stay humble and don’t forget who we are,” he told the station.

Missouri Lottery officials have not yet confirmed the identity of the winner, who will get half of the largest Powerball jackpot ever, $587.5 million.

The question of who won the Arizona jackpot took an interesting twist Thursday when a man walked into a convenience store in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, to casually check a stash of lottery tickets, CNN affiliate WJLA reported. The man said he’d bought at least one of the tickets in Arizona, according to store clerk Nagassi Ghebre.

He pumps his arms a few times, then gives the ticket to Ghebre, and eventually a customer for verification.

“And that’s when he said, ‘I gotta get out of here’ and he took off,” Ghebre said. “He came back a minute later and said, ‘I forgot to get my gas.’ “

At a Dearborn Trex Mart gas station, clerk Kristi Williams asked every customer the same question Thursday after news broke that the winning ticket was purchased there.

“As soon as they walk in the door, ‘Have you checked your ticket?’ “she told CNN affiliate KCTV of Kansas City.

The other winning ticket was sold thousands of miles away at the Four Sons Food Store in Fountain Hills, just outside of Phoenix, Arizona, state lottery spokeswoman Karen Bach said. The winner hasn’t come forward there.

“Unbelievable,” said Four Sons manager Bob Chebat. “Everyone comes in here buying tickets, joking they’ll take care of you if they win. But chances are so slim that it becomes standard that no one does win. I just don’t know what to say. I’m shocked. I hope I was the guy who sold the winning ticket.”

The Arizona store will receive $25,000 for selling the winning ticket, while the Missouri store will get $50,000. The payout to sellers varies state to state as it is determined by each state’s lottery officials.

The prize for the lottery — held in 42 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia — swelled to the largest in Powerball history after the jackpot rolled over 16 times without a winner.

It still doesn’t match the U.S. record payout of $656 million, set in March by a Mega Millions jackpot. Three winners split that pot.

California added its name Thursday to the states participating in Powerball, with the California Lottery Commission voting unanimously to adopt the mega-jackpot lottery game. Powerball tickets will go on sale in California on April 8, 2013.

Lottery officials previously urged winners to take their time coming forward.

Winners should sign the ticket, put it in a safe place and seek legal and financial advice before redeeming it, Missouri Lottery Director May Scheve Reardon said.

Whoever comes forward with the winning tickets may want to speak to Donald Lawson. The Michigan man won the $337 million Powerball prize in August and vowed that the new infusion of green would not change him — or his eating habits.

“I’m a millionaire now, but I’ll still go to McDonald’s,” he said as he stood smiling at the Michigan Lottery headquarters in Lansing.

Back in Dearborn, resident Bill Matney said he hoped the winning ticket holder didn’t “get deluged by a lot of people wanting part of their winnings.”

“And that they put it to a good use like charity,” he told KCTV. “I mean, who can spend that much money?”
